Happy Fourth of July!July 4, 2007 at 2:54 pm | Posted in other stuff, out of town | 1 Comment
Happy Independence Day to my fellow American friends! I wish you all a very fun, safe holiday. So no M-80s in the front yard! This is the first year in a very long time that I will not be watching the fireworks either in New York from the Brooklyn Heights promenade while enjoying a Mister Softee chocolate-dipped chocolate soft-serve, or from a spot on the Mall in Washington, DC, while listening to the National Symphony Orchestra. (I’ve gotta say that DC’s display really beats all others.) I’ll be missing the excitement, but don’t worry…I’m not boo-hooing too much about it, as R and I are going for a nice dinner at Rockpool to celebrate.
On a different matter, we are moving to a new apartment in Sydney at the end of the week. We have been told by our internet provider that we will have a lengthy lapse in service because of the move. I will make a post tomorrow for this month’s Weekend Cookbook Challenge, but then won’t be back on-line for ten days. With all that free-time, I’ll be sure to make something tasty in my new kitchen to report back on!
